World No Tobacco Day – Tuesday, 31 May 2022

For World No Tobacco Day on Tuesday, 31 May 2022, Smokefree City & Hackney is encouraging everyone to start a conversation with smokers and signpost them to quit support. As the country’s number one killer, it’s down to us to help the majority of smokers who want to quit.

Studies have shown that smokers given advice on how to quit rather than why to quit are more likely to succeed. Getting support can greatly increase someone’s chances of quitting successfully.

Promoting smoking cessation is the most effective thing healthcare professionals can do to improve health outcomes for patients who smoke. It is also one of the most effective ways of triggering a quit attempt.
